Cambridge teenager Grace Andrews has a love of Christmas, and she wants to share it with families in need.
Grace has come up with Project with a Purpose, a way of spreading Christmas joy to children in need. Would-be donors can pick up a shoe box from Wholly Cow Butchery, decorate the outside of the box, fill it with unwrapped gifts for kids and return the box to Wholly Cow.
Gifts for ages 1-4, 5-8, 9-11 and 12-14 will then be distributed by the Cambridge Salvation Army, bringing some smiles to little faces in what can be a stressful time of year. The shoe boxes are available now, and gifts need to be back at the shop by December 18, so they can be distributed in time for the big day.
“Just remember, everyone deserves to have a great Christmas and you can help me achieve my goal,” Grace said.
